> Go is like a better Ruby or Python.

I don't think so. Go has its own set of pros/cons just like every other platform. You could equally argue that the huge array of libraries for Ruby and Python would make it "better". And ActiveRecord or Rails alone are major advantages of the Ruby platform.

Personally I see Go being more like Java 1.0. Simple and elegant.

I have a Ruby tattooed on my body, we're in agreement. But we're increasingly becoming a minority opinion. Go is certainly eating away at Ruby and Python's mindshare.

I've only seen more people interested in Ruby over the last few years, and only token interest in Go. I hear a lot more interest in Elixir/Erlang, Rust, Clojure, and Haskell from Rubyists around here than I do for Go.
